A MAN who carried a baseball bat into a Hampshire pub is to be sentenced in the crown court.

Lindsay Dean Hastings, 45, admitted carrying the offensive weapon into the Hunters Inn, in Romsey, during an incident on April 10, 2019.

Appearing at Southampton Crown Court on Wednesday, Hastings, of Mortimer Close, Totton, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of an offensive weapon.

His sentencing was adjourned until March 11 to allow for the creation of a pre-sentence report.

Hastings was allowed bail, with the conditions not to enter the Hunters Inn, Winchester Hill, Romsey, or to contact two named people.
